I ask for prayers too for my coworker XiaoMin and her family; her father had a heart attack, and she is waiting anxiously for the paperwork and tickets to fly home to China to see him. I pray for an increase in compassionate porousness of the borders between nations. Between all beings, too.
Thank you guys so much! She's ok to leave early next week, which I know is an agonizingly long wait, but she seems optimistic. He's in the hospital and his condition is stable, there are some complications and cause for concern, I gather he's still undergoing testing. I think right now she's just so grateful that he's still alive and she's going to get to be there with her family soon.
